Computational Psychiatry meetings (TAU-CP)

Computational psychiatry seminar

TAU-CP (Tel-Aviv University Computational Psychiatry meetings) is a monthly seminar hosted by Shahar-Lab, targeting the computational psychiatry community. Our main aim is to invite authors of recent relevant papers to present their work and provide a relaxed context where both novice and more advanced students can freely ask questions. The seminars are 60 min long followed by a discussion on topics including but not limited to decision-making, computational modeling of behavior, neural decoding, and its applications to neuroscience and clinical psychiatry. Seminars are held once a month on Monday at 4 pm (ILT) i.e., 9 am (EST).
